This Week in Great Music: 11/30 – 12/6

How is it December already? I find this incredibly unfair. I’m not okay with this at all.

If you’ve missed out on tickets to The xx on Tuesday, don’t go and pay double face value just to get in to the sold out show.  Tickets are still available for their show in April 2010 with Hot Chip.
